A revision of NZS 3910 Conditions of contract for building and engineering construction is underway. Based on feedback from the sector, three Standards will be published in place of one. The three Standards will be:
- NZS 3910 Conditions of Contract for building and civil engineering – Construction
- NZS 3916 Conditions of contract for building and civil engineering – Design and construction
- NZS 3917 Conditions of Contract for building and civil engineering – Term maintenance.
As a result of a large amount of public comment, two additional meetings will be held to enable the committee to discuss all comments. The additional meetings will be held in February and March 2013. The expected publication date for the three Standards is now September 2013.
NZS 3910 is the most widely used standard form of contract conditions in New Zealand. It provides a standard form of general conditions of contract that can be adapted to incorporate into construction contract documents.
